Dear Anglophiles: If, perchance, you've not yet seen the movie The Imitation Game about Britain's incomparable computer scientist and mathematician Alan Turing, I encourage you to posthaste! The fact that it stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley is reason alone to buy a movie ticket, right? It's the most engrossing Anglophile movie I've seen in a number of years and is destined to become a classic. Below is an podcast I discovered, featuring Cumberbatch talking about Bletchley Park and filming of the movie.
Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
P.S. The next big, Anglophile-crowd-pleaser movie will surely be the new adaptation of Thomas Hardy's famous love story, Far From the Madding Crowd, set for release this spring, in 2015. From IMDb: "In Victorian England, the independent and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer; Frank Troy, a reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and mature bachelor."
